This is such an incredibly awesome swap! I love it! But, OMG, I'm already participating in 2 others, plus trying to get ready to travel to Holland (my first international trip! I can't wait to see european thrift stores! Yay!) in May. But.... But I want to really bad. Props to jessicakes for coming up with this swap.

This is a FANTASTIC idea - I'm heading to the thrift store tommorow to start scouting pictures.

I'm assuming that we should be choosing reasonable sized pictures, nothing too big right?

I can't wait!

fiesty, you should so join in! it's going to be so much fun  Grin

I'd say stick to reasonable sized pictures, but if you find one that's a little large, just send a couple bucks to make up the shipping difference.

What is "reasonable size?" Because this sounds really cool, but it also could get pretty pricey.

I think what we decided was  when you find out how much it is going to cost to mail the picture to your swapper  you also send enough money to cover the cost of shipping it back to you.  Is that right Jessicakes?

But aren't we also shipping back to someone else? Unless someone sends a very large or heavy picture, won't it all be about even?
I can't wait to see what people come up with for this one. Truly brilliant idea Jessicakes!

IQ as I understand it the picture that we alter is sent to us with money to ship it back to its owner.  Maybe I'm confrused...
